t’s not uncommon for patients to combine cosmetic surgery procedures. While it’s not safe to combine every procedure, many can be combined with great results.
Patients may choose to combine cosmetic surgeries for a variety of reasons. These include:
- To limit time away from work,
- To combine recovery times,
- To potentially decrease costs, and
- To reduce the need for anesthesia.
As long as the patient is healthy, combining cosmetic procedures can be advantageous. Perhaps the best reason to combine surgical procedures is to achieve the best outcome. That’s especially true of liposuction and fat grafting.
Two of the most popular cosmetic procedures to combine are liposuction and fat transfer to the buttocks. Sometimes called a Brazilian butt lift, grafting fat into the buttocks creates a fuller, more proportional silhouette using your body’s own fat. It’s natural, requires no artificial implants, and the results last for years.
Here’s how it works.
A small tube called a cannula will be used to remove fatty deposits from a few areas of your body. Your abdomen, thighs, love handles, upper arms or hips are good candidates since quite a bit of fat is required to achieve results in your derriere.
Once the fat is harvested, it is purified and prepared for transfer to the buttocks.
The purified fat is injected into the patient’s buttocks in the areas where enhancement is needed. The exact amount of fat that’s transferred will depend on the patient’s anatomy and desired appearance. Along with injections of fat, the cosmetic surgeon will massage the area to achieve the desired contour and to make sure the fat is positioned correctly.
By combining liposuction with fat transfer to the buttocks, you’re essentially improving multiple areas of your body at once. You’re getting the round, perky bottom you’ve always wanted while getting rid of stubborn love handles, saddlebags and belly fat! You’ll be left with a sculpted, toned body that you love to show off!
